If you don’t know by now, Jurassic Park 3D comes out April 5, 2013. I’ll start off by saying this could be a truly remarkable experience. This movie might rock socks. But I don’t think it will. My guess is that it will be a waste of 18 bucks, and here is why.
All 3D movies are not created equal. I’ve seen a few and every one is worse than the last. The first 3D movie I ever watched was Avatar. The 3D effect in Avatar was amazing. That’s the bar, that’s par. Next Alice in Wonderland. Compared to the 3D in Avatar, Alice in Wonderland was substandard. The picture wasn’t as clear and didn’t fully give the sensation that I was standing next to the characters. It was good though, a bogie maybe. Next there was Clash of the Titans. This movie had poor effects. Poor. There are more examples which I’m sure you’ve seen.
The real reason I won’t see Jurassic Park 3D until a credible source looks me in the eye and tells me it’s worth the outrageous movie ticket is because of Lion King 3D. This remake was absolute garbage. Why? Because it wasn’t 3D. 99% of the movie had a peculiar computerized sheen to it. Every so often there would be a shot of leaves blowing in the wind, transitioning between scenes. The leaves were indeed 3D, but not in the original Lion King. It became clear to me that the remake was nothing more than a cheap marketing scheme, releasing an old product under a new name at higher cost.
Avatar had masterful effects because the movie was created for that specific effect. Until proven otherwise, I am doubtful of 3D remakes. It’s a rip off. The point I’m making is that double D’s are better than 3D’s. So here you go.
